Instructions for Using this Record Book

This record is designed to be the place for you to keep records on your animal projects. Read through the book carefully and complete all sections requested (for example, project planning, feed and health care purchases, supplies and tools, results from shows, and a financial summary). Do not leave any sections blank unless they do not relate to your project animal. It is important that you do your own work, but ask your 4-H leader, Extension Agent, parents, or other 4-H volunteers for help when you do not understand something.

This project record book is for record-keeping only. Information about how to raise these animals can be found in various 4-H Project Guides. Copies of project guides may be obtained from your local Virginia Cooperative Extension office.

1. Read through this book and familiarize yourself with the kinds of records you will need and where information should be recorded. Discuss the book with your parent and/or 4-H leader.

2. Complete essential information when you first start your project, such as the cover page and the project planning page. Share your goals with your 4-H leader.

3. Keep your records up to date. Record information as it occurs. Consider setting aside specific times during the project when you will work on your record book.

4. Write neatly and legibly. Use only one color ink.

5. Include at least one photograph of you with your project animal, but do not include more than two pages of photos. Additional clippings should be displayed in a scrapbook, not this record book.

6. Maintain your book in a 3-ring notebook/binder or folder.

7. Write a project story that captures what happened during your project. Discuss your goals, your activities, your challenges, and your accomplishments. Project stories must be at least five sentences; more experienced 4-H members stories should be more in depth.
